As time went by, he learned about other open source solutions as well, and got interested in WordPress. During 2010, his first book about WordPress was released in The Netherlands. After that, several Dutch titles followed about WordPress, Joomla, and Magento, all of which were very successful. In 2013, he released his first English book with Packt Publishing, Magento Beginner's Guide second edition. He wrote the book together with Co-author Sander Schoneville. This book about WooCommerce is his first solo title that is released by Packt Publishing.
